Second, You copy and install 'OpenFOAM-1.2.General.gtgz' and 'OpenFOAM-1.2.linuxGcc4Opt.gtgz' in /home/david/OpenFoam
Use comannd tar xzf -1.2.General.gtgz and tar xzf OpenFOAM-1.2.linuxGcc4Opt.gtgz

Third, You copy and install 'gcc gcc-4.0.1.linux.tgz',
'ParaView paraview-2.2.0.linux.tgz' and 'JAVA j2sdk1.4.2_05.linux.tgz' in /home/david/OpenFoam/linux
